6:00 am
we'll have more coming up. >> more rain to come coming up. >> a high wind advisory towards the bay bridge and we are starting to see delays. we'll look at the morning commute coming up. good morning, everyone. it's tuesday, november 20. i'm frank mallicoat. >> i'm michelle griego. time now 6:00. some developing news in the east bay this morning. many people in pittsburg are waking up to a big sinkhole. >> all thanks to a big pipe burst overnight that caused a mess and residents likely won't be getting their morning shower at least in that neighborhood. cbs 5's cate caugiran is in pittsburg to explain what happened. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, frank and michelle. i spoke with the utility worker just a few moments ago who attributes this to normal wear and tear but again it's not going to be a normal morning for people here in the pittsburg neighborhood. you can take a look. utility workers have been here trying to get a handle on the situation. we're told a water main break caused this four-foot sinkhole. the workers tell me they got the call around midnight and were able to shut off the water
6:01 am
about an hour and a half later. and then workers told me it was an old pipe about 6" pipe and again normal wear and tear but it will be affecting this neighborhood, about 10 to 50 homes between york and cutter streets and they are not sure when they will be able to restore water to the area. but what they are doing right now is they are trying to drain that sinkhole. basically they vacuumed down in there trying to drain all the water. they say it's tricky because they have to get in at an angle. once they drain the water there, they say that they are going to cut off that section of old pipe and try to replace it. back out live, you can see there's a lot of work that needs to be done the workers have been here since midnight trying to contain this area but again, they were able to isolate it to just this block. if you are in the area, 10 to 15 homes between york and cutter streets have no water. but we'll get more updates and a timeline when they can contain this later on
6:02 am
throughout the morning. live in pittsburg, cate caugiran, cbs 5. >> thank you. screws in redwood city are trying to repair -- crews in. >> reporter: are trying to repair a water main break that happened around 3 a.m. near brewster and warren street. that intersection will be closed to traffic for much of the morning. nearby garages were flooded but the leak is capped. some people in the area are still without water for at least five more hours. and at this hour, hundreds of workers are starting a one- day strike at the port of oakland. just a couple of minutes ago chopper 5 captured these pictures over the port. they are out in force as you can see a number of picketers that are beginning to congregate there at the port of oakland. cbs 5 reporter elissa harrington is at the port this morning where they are setting up picket lines. >> reporter: there are two picket lines this morning. one at the airport the other here at the port. you can see quite a few people out here holding up their signs. they have been chanting. we're expecting hundreds more
6:03 am
to come throughout the morning. but look at these truck drivers. they are trying to get into the port to take care of their daily business. but they cannot get through because of the strikers. so it appears that they are affecting operations this morning. their goal is to shut down the port for the day. hundreds of workers and supporters have been shuttling into the port for a one-day strike. there are two picket lines, one at the port another at the airport that actually launched last night. most of these are under the same management. some airport workers represented by the service employees international union started striking last night heading up a picket line outside of terminal one. they will also hold a rally today at noon. more than 200seiu workers have been without a contract for 16 months. the port wants to cut their wages and benefits. a union rep says the port is also withholding financial information that's important to bargaining. he says they are upset with how port executives have been spending money. one of the directors just
6:04 am
resigned following allegations public money was used at a strip club. >> it's the last four or five years our people have been taking furlough days, asked to take other types of cuts at the same time as these people are just arrogantly out spending fraudulently the port's money that should be on our table. this should be feeding our children and keeping us in our houses. so absolutely you can imagine the frustration of the workers to see and hear that that's taking place at a time when saying they are broke and have no money. >> reporter: workers have also displayed an inflatable rat which is a symbol of labor protest. the union rep i spoke to says if they don't get this time, they will be back out here again and again until it happens. in oakland, elissa harrington, cbs 5. in about an hour nurses also plan to go on strike at ten bay area hospitals. the walkout is planned for two days at eight sutter hospitals
6:05 am
and for today only at two san jose hospitals run by hospital corporation of america. replacement nurses have been hired for five days. it will be the second nurses strike here in the bay area this month. key issues including staffing levels and sick leave are on the table. egyptian president mohamed morsi says israel's aggression against gaza will end today. this is a live look right now at gaza city. it's a bit quiet right now. egypt is where talks have been going on in hopes finding a diplomatic solution to the week- long conflict between israel and hamas militants in gaza. it's now been about a week since israel began air strikes on the gaza strip. at least 113 palestinians have been reported killed in gaza. nearly half civilians. the death toll in israel is only 3. susan mcginnis has more on the continuing violence. reporter: mosques in gaza issued the call for morning prayers today even as bombs and missiles rained down around them. the israeli military says it hit about 100 terror sites
6:06 am
overnight, including the islamic national bank in gaza city that israel says it used to fund terror operations. hamas militants have launched more than 1,000 rockets into israel during this week-long battle. palestinian officials say 38 more people were killed monday including women and children. israel says it's time to minimize civilian casualties. >> the problem is the terrorists are hiding these rocket launchers deep inside civilian areas in mosques and schools and people's homes, firing them at our civilians. it's very hard to get to this equipment, but it's necessary. >> reporter: president obama is sending secretary of state hillary clinton to israel to help with cease-fire negotiations. she will arrive today and meet with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu tomorrow. >> our bottom line is that a peaceful outcome has to include an end to rocket fire that threatens israel. >> reporter: the political leader of hamas told reporters in cairo hamas will not stop launching rockets until israel
6:07 am
stops its bombing campaign and ends the blockade of gaza. he also said israel is bluffing and won't send troops into gaza. israeli officials say that's no bluff. susan mcginnis, cbs news, washington. a palestinian rocket hit near jerusalem today landing harmlessly in an open area but it's one of the longest rocket strikes fired from gaza in the week of fighting. jerusalem is one of secretary clinton's planned stops. it is 6:07. four california men are behind bars accused of plotting to join al qaeda and kill americans. suspects range in age from 21 to 34, all arrested in l.a. they each will face 15 years in
6:08 am
prison. >> it's 6:08. let's check weather. >> the rain is coming. >> we have the holidays around the corner now. we want to clear things out. i think we'll do that. but right now we are seeing showers outside. hi-def doppler showing most of that moisture located in the north bay. we have had about a third of an inch in the santa rosa area already more than that over some of the mountaintops. but some of it spreading south a couple of sprinkles along the peninsula so watch out for that. most of the activity so far located to the north and most of it just some warm frontal moisture. the cold front still hung up to the north has a ways to go before it gets here bringing more substantial rainfall. you can see though the cold front located here in northern california will drop into the bay area but keep that umbrella handy today. you may need it and probably by the afternoon more so especially in the north bay. outside though, mostly cloudy skies and it is a bit mild to begin with. 58 degrees in oakland. 59 degrees in san francisco. and 55 in san jose. more on that holiday forecast coming up but right now let's check the slick roads with elizabeth. >> reporter: thank you, lawrence. if you typically ride caltrain
6:09 am
in the morning, it's not sounding good. we just got a tweet actually from caltrain that there are likely delays. first reports that northbound train 103 struck someone near charleston avenue. that is in palo alto. so again, the exact impact of service is unclear. but when something like this happens, we often see delays. again, that's first reports northbound train 103 struck someone near charleston avenue in palo alto. all other mass transit on time. elsewhere, to our roadways. we are watching a couple of different accidents. eastbound 4 port chicago highway, one lane blocked there. in the commute direction westbound 4 slow through antioch. you can see windy out there as well shaking our camera a bit, 880 in oakland. southbound 880 at high street an accident, injury crash, cleared to the right shoulder. that is traffic. back to you guys. >> thank you. fire investigators say a fire that burned a vallejo home on monday night is suspicious. the house on tennessee street is the same home where a
6:10 am
vallejo police officer was shot and killed as he served a warrant in april of 2000. firefighters kept the flames contained to just the garage. the cause of the fire is under investigation. a manhunt is on in san jose for a suspect police say was involved in a crime spree that included a fatal shooting. it began on friday night with four armed robberies. one of the suspects appears in that surveillance photo you saw. the crime also included a carjacking that left a young man dead and a shootout that injured an officer. >> these were heinous crimes perpetrated by two individuals who clearly have no regard for human life. >> the murder victim rory parkpettiford had just bought a bmw that morning. police say the suspects were trying to steal it. parkpettiford was 22 years old and an aspiring hip-hop singer. his father is now urging the suspect on the run to turn himself in. >> 6:11. today city supervisors in san francisco will vote on an ordinance to ban nudity in most public places in the city.
6:11 am
it would apply to anyone over the age of 5. but there would be exceptions for participants of street fairs and parades that have nudity permits. supervisor scott weiner authored the ordinance and has the support of mayor ed lee, as well. >> i think the right balance is being struck by supervisor weiner's legislation which i intend to support. >> the mayor notes that nudity is still allowed in some controlled settings, also violations will be a citation and not a misdemeanor. time now 6:11. a divorced woman lets her emotions run wild. the colorful message she left behind at a courthouse. >> and the judge is not all that happy about that. >> and a scare for california movie-goers. gunshots ring out in the new "twilight" movie. why nobody was arrested. we'll explain. >> and twinkie talks. the last-ditch effort to save your favorite hostess snack.

if you ride caltrain we got off the folks there, major delays. this happened 15 minutes ago. someone was killed on the northbound train 103 on the tracks in palo alto. trains are stopped this morning in both directions in that area. we have learned they set up a bus bridge between san antonio and palo alto. but they are expecting major delays in both directions. all other mass transit is on time. >> to the roads now, we are also watching a couple of different accidents including in one that was just cleared to the median, eastbound 4 at port chicago highway in the commute direction delays from antioch all the way towards the concord area this morning.
6:16 am
so we know a lot of people may be heading out of town for the holidays. southbound 101 looks like we lost that shot, if you are heading towards sfo, but i can tell you it looks good this morning if you are heading out 101 towards the airport. also, pretty quiet this morning on southbound 880. if you are heading towards oakland airport there was an injury crash approaching high street that's now out of lanes and the delays have resolved themselves. so it looks good right now coming through the macarthur maze and all the way down past the airport into hayward. northbound 880 is fine, as well. so bart might be a good option heading towards airports and there will be longer trains starting tomorrow and as well for all the holiday shoppers on friday and then for all the travelers returning home on sunday. so bart is trying to accommodate all those air travelers and holiday shoppers. let's check the bay bridge. they just turned on the metering lights and we are seeing delays behind that first overcrossing. that's a check of your "timesaver traffic." pretty gusty. in fact, we have a high wind advisory in effect at the bay bridge. >> speaking of delays,
6:17 am
elizabeth, we have delays now at sfo almost 3 hours. that's right, folks. so be prepared for that if you are expecting anyone in or heading out. looks like high-def doppler radar showing we have some rainfall this morning. most of that is just some lighter stuff but continues to fall on and off especially in the north bay. mist and sprinkles elsewhere but the main activity to the north. scattered showers near santa rosa, sebastopol and looks like that will continue to be the case, a very moist flow coming off the pacific. so we'll see more of that throughout the morning. then the cold front moves in throughout the day so things will be interesting for today. plenty of clouds on the way, some mild temperatures to go along with that. rain more likely especially later in the day and then overnight into tomorrow morning. the cold front still on approach. we are seeing that warm front roll into the bay area ahead of it bringing moisture today and the showers early on. but as that cold front moves in later on, that's when we'll watch the rain pick up. so carry the umbrella, will need it. these temperatures fairly mild. starting with lots of clouds in the bay area, showers early
6:18 am
on in the north. then late in the day the cold front moves in by 5:00 in the afternoon. and then slowly it drags itself through the bay area overnight into early tomorrow morning. and then i think we are setting up for a busy travel day and i this the skies are going to clear out pretty nicely around the bay area. delays again sfo, two hours and 45 minutes this morning. so watch out for that. around the country though good news we clear out. 79 degrees partly cloudy in houston. 70 in denver. 57 degrees in chicago. and a cool 48 into new york. temperatures around the bay area mainly into the 60s. next couple of days after the system goes by i think tomorrow partly cloudy skies by the afternoon. we should start to dry out. thanksgiving day looks great. lots of sunshine, warmer weather, into the weekend. that's the latest. back to you. >> thank you. 6:18. a psychiatrist says the accused gunman in the oikos university rampage in oakland is incompetent to stand trial. that psychiatrist found that 43-year-old one goh had long- standing paranoid
